of the late romney campaign. we're going to excavate the murky truths that were the living heart and mind of the defeated republican effort. going to exhume tonight the guts of the thinking that went on and went so wrong. tonight, we get what we only guessed at, the results of which played out in the numbers of election night. the nasty, anti-immigrant politics, the attitude toward that 47%, the failure to turn out the white male vote, the reason romney picked ryan, and the wild prelude to the clint eastwood performance. tonight right here on "hardball," the dark aroma of what lies now beneath the dirt so we can understand what it looks like to think and feel your way into an historic disaster. with me are jeff zeleny with "the new york times" and susan milligan who is contributing editor at "u.s. news & world report." you laugh. it's not funny. you both attended that harvard institute of policy forum. last week with top advisers from both the obama and romney campaigns. they just released, by the way, tonight, we have the audio recordings of that not filmed event. we have a real autopsy

to mitt romney or republicans because those three points said we don't know republicans. we don't have relationships with with them. so, we'll just stay home. i submit to you they probably stayed home. they didn't vote for republicans. >> so, but how do you get african-americans, a group that is traditionally identified as democratic. 73% of asian voters and the stereotype is different for african-american or hispanic voters. they're all voting democratic. what is is it about the republican party that could possibly win these people over? >> well, the fact is and i've said this publicly before. i don't allow the republican party to lead me on issues that i thought were important to the black community and that's not to say they agree with me on everything, but when i was in college, i wanted colleges and universities to have a seat at the republican table. so i had conferences for them. i wanted black small business owners. latino. to have access and relationships to the democratic of department. federal agencies to understanding the contracting process. i think there are things you ca

-elected for another four years and he worked hard to try to help romney get elected, help republicans and it's a source of frustration. a different challenge for him running a major think tank in washington and let's see how he does. >> for the time being it doesn't change the balance of power as the republicans aren't in control of the senate. >> there's a republican governor in south carolina and so she'll name someone in the short-term. i assume that's how it will work. once there's another election, i assume a republican will fill that seat. >> and i know you'll have much more on the fiscal cliff and any developments that hopefully we'll get. we're hoping for something any day. shreds. any shreds that we can get. live starting at 4:00 p.m. eastern. good to see you, wolf. thanks. many of my patients still clean their dentures with toothpaste. but they have to use special care in keeping the denture clean. dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can multiply. polident is designed to clean dentures daily. its unique

to distance themselves from mitt romney's toc comments on people who receive government assistance. >> both parties tend to divide americans into our voters and their voters. let's be really clear. republicans must steer far clear of that trap. >> i've heard it suggested that the problem is, that the american people have changed. too many people want things from government. but i'm still convinced that the overwhelming majority of our people want what my parents had, a chance. >> reporter: republican strategists say their candidacies could help hit the gop reset button and give hillary clinton a serious challenge. >> does she scare republicans? >> i think she energizes republicans. what we're seeing right now are some very positive numbers for hillary clinton now. she's been out of the political fray for four years. when she becomes a politician again, if she goes into the political fray, into that ring, the gloves are off and the bell is ringing. >> unlike her last run in 20078 which went all the way through every democratic primary and caucus, hillary clinton would likely see her party ra

to the country after the election defeat of romney the way in which the governors in las vegas who spoke about modernizing gop as you might do abroad. can they push the gop along to the extent that we get a deal sooner rather than later on this particular issue? >> reporter: in theory they could. in practice the national political dialogue and state level political dialogues move on separate tracks. the governors can lend their voices but they can't have a lot of influence. members of the house and senate who are elected in particular states, they are driven by their own electoral imperatives and political imperatives and the governors have influence but not all that much. the one thing that is true about the governors, simon, most states are strained financially. they need more money. the healthier the federal government is financially, the more aid they get in those states and the reverse is true as well. the worst the federal deficit, the more aids to states get cut. >> okay. john, thank you very much. the view there from washington as we keep our eye on fiscal cliff negotiations. we have a
